With its new Eat Late menu, available nightly after 10pm,  with edibles to satisfy after-hour cravings, Yard House* kicks it into high gear:  the lights get lower, the music gets louder, and the restaurant becomes a lot more communal as guests belly up to the bar, pile into one of Yard House’s ample-size booths, or stake claim to one of the high-top tables for four.

The Yard House’s new Eat Late menu, inspired by the affordable, urban street food movement, includes  Black Truffle Cheeseburger  ($7.95), Pastrami Dog ($6.75)- a beef hot dog topped with thin slices of pastrami, yellow horseradish mustard and fried green cabbage drizzled with malt vinegar; Chilaquiles ($5.85) topped with jack cheese, sour cream, guacamole, tomatillo sauce and a fried egg, or Monte Cristo Pops  ($6.35) Ham, turkey and Swiss cheese mini sandwiches deep-fried and dusted with powdered sugar and served with a jalapeno peach syrup

Eat Late items can be paired with one of Yard House’s 100-250 beers on tap, new crafted cocktails inspired by classic concoctions, Fresh & Skinny cocktails weighing in at 170 calories or less, one of the many wines by the bottle or glass, or Yard House’s signature green iced-tea.
